quote . you were there talking to mitch mcconnell on the republican side. where are we? >> well, bob, i'm cautiously hopeful, optimistic that we can come to an agreement and open up the government and avoid default based on the bipartisan meetings that are going on. >> schieffer: well, what's the sticking points? >> the good stuff is senator mcconnell and senator reid both understood the gravity of afault and mao we had to avoid it, and while i don't want to get into details, the frameworks they each had were not that far apart, a lot closer than, say, house republicans and the president. it's also very good that there are bipartisan groups meeting. i really respect what susan collins is doing. and that will-- that will help bring things about. so here's what i'd say-- with the president, with senate democrats, with senate republicans, there's a will. we now have to find a way. we know the house won't find that way. so the whole-- all of it rests on our shoulders. but finding that way is hard, but we're not out of the ballpark in any way. >> schieffer: what about undoing the sequester? i
